Manchester City had won the 2022-23 Premier League season but it was anything but easy for the Blues. Arsenal gave them a tough fight throughout the campaign and led the table for so long. However, when it mattered the most, the Gunners suffered a mighty collapse, allowing Pep Guardiola’s side to leapfrog them and get their hands on the prized trophy. With the season now over, it is time to look back at some of the notable data from the term.
Which club made the most passes?
The team at the top of this list is an expected one in Manchester City. The Premier League champions are known for their attractive style of football and they exhibited it yet again in the recently concluded campaign. Man City were chasing Arsenal for most of the season, however, they never gave up and kept going till the very end. At last, it was their sheer willpower which helped them get over the line. Overall, City made 25,072 passes over the course of the league season.
Second on the list is Liverpool with 22,401 passes. Even though that was a struggling campaign on the pitch, it is not a surprise to see the Reds at the top end of this table. Jurgen Klopp’s side are known for their attacking type of game, which involves them keeping plenty of the ball. Liverpool are good at winning the ball back quickly by pressing or counter-pressing. This data shows that the Reds might not have gotten the desired results but their performances were not that bad.
Brighton & Hove Albion occupy the third spot in the Premier League table. They were one of the surprise packages of the 2022-23 league season. Playing an attractive brand of football, Brighton made life extremely difficult for all teams on the pitch. Their impressive performances also earned them an unlikely European spot after finishing sixth in the standings. Brighton made a total of 21,280 passes over the course of the campaign.
Chelsea, Arsenal not far behind
Chelsea were another team that had a disappointing campaign, which saw them finish in the bottom half of the table. The only good thing is that the Blues retained the ball well by making 21,149 passes. They are followed by Arsenal with 20,450 passes.
